Countless variations of the Tank appeared (in the Chinoise, horizontal bars at the top and bottom of the dial rest on the Tank’s vertical “treads”), and in 1965 there was even a watch whose body was shaped like a parallelogram. But it was not until the Must de Cartier in 1976 and the reissue of the Santos in 1978 that the firm was able to reestablish itself as a player on the wristwatch scene.

Here we have the replica Cartier Pasha Chronograph in 42mm and its replica so that we can clearly see the differences between them. There are three main differences between these two watches, but it’s nothing extremely noticeable. The first noticeable difference is on the crown; the crown on both watches features a beautiful blue jewel but it seems that the design on the replica is a bit different as the jewel is less pointy than the jewel on the original watch, which is quite flat.

This advertisement by Tavannes was used for years, beginning in the late 1930s, to symbolize its preeminence as the world’s fourth-largest watch manufacturer. The artist’s rendering shows the five factories located in Tavannes (the company’s headquarters); Neuchatel; La Joux; La Chaux de Fonds; and LeLocle. Combined, the factories made 4,000 finished pieces a day. In addition to being distributed through Dunhill, the Tavannes “La Captive” model caught the attention of luxury jeweler Cartier. This specimen’s sterling silver case is overlaid with beautiful white and red enamel. Cartier sold these watches using the signature “Lisica S.A.” on the movements, which was a subsidiary of Tavannes. Photo by Sotheby’s. An Early Adopter
An independent watchmaker in England popularized something called the coaxial escapement, which he used in a very limited production of expensive pocket and wristwatches. But then Omega patented the design and is still using it in its wristwatches today. It doesn’t require lubrication. I think they had some problems with it developmentally, but now they’re over that, and it’s supposed to be pretty reliable. These two details are a handhold to recognize pieces from the now retired ‘Collection Privée’ series, since only a few pieces did not have the rosette or were not individually numbered.
